Our Corporate Vision
Since its establishment, MEDIROM's objective has been to become a 'health care general trading company' that is capable of providing integrated services ranging from the field of disease prevention to medical treatment.
The medical and healthcare sectors are business domains that are drawing a lot of attention as growth industries. In Japan, with ever increasing medical expenses due to advanced aging, long life spans and record patient intakes, the national medical insurance system is overburdened and unlikely in its current state to meet future obligations.
The ¥45 trillion market, including disease prevention and health checkups, is expected to provide new business opportunities as the market is deregulated further in the natural course of events.
Developed countries are facing the aging population problem, and the market for medical and healthcare related services is continuing to expand. (E.g. IT for medical tech/healthcare, medical infrastructure in developing countries)
Backed by the stable revenue foundation of franchise salons and multi decade brand strength, MEDIROM is currently investing in its medical media and healthcare research segments to achieve industry leading growth rates and margins.
This marks an exciting new roadmap for the business as it consolidates domestically in Japan, rolls out value accretive tech segments and lead operations overseas.
